Sustainability and Impact Global Series (3): Incubating the Future in Africa

Nova SBE innovating in the teaching of impact and sustainability!  


From climate change, to poverty or gender inequality, enterprises and businesses are now asked to walk the talk- but what can be done? What is being done? The Grad students of Prof. Filipe Alfaiate course “Leading Impact Enterprises in International Development”,  designed and developed podcasts as their final assignment where they applied the course’s content - and the best podcasts are at the centre of this Sustainability and Impact Global Series!  

This first season has eight exciting episodes exploring how some enterprises in Africa are working towards impact and sustainability. We will look into the tools they use, the challenges they face, how they adapt their pricing, marketing, distribution to commercially reach a growing market of more than 2,5 billion people - with a positive impact!

EPISODE 3

Learn how a business incubator is unleashing the power of business in Africa to bring prosperity in 10 countries through inclusive agribusinesses. This insightful journey with the enterprise 2SCALE was researched and put together by Lisa Antonissen, Luis Fernando Sosa Flores, Robert Fezer, Viktoria Schwarze, Tomás Ferreira Do Santos Laranjo - with the support from Prof. Filipe Alfaiate and the TA Daniela Afonso.
